We interviewed Pete Fowler in his Shoreditch Studios and filmed him working in both pixels and paint. He gave us a fantastic insight into his work with Super Furry Animals, his current obsession with the beauty in destruction and some great opinions on the internet and why people are using analogue methods of creativity so much in the digital era!
We had the absolute pleasure of visiting the It's Nice That offices in both locations, once in their old office and once in the new office where we filmed an interview with Will Hudson.
Its amazing to see how much the company has evolved in the 7 years it has been operation, and we got some wonderful background from Will about the companies humble beginnings, and his thoughts on digital and print publishing.
Will also gave us a great insight into his childhood publishing exploits, and we got some unique perspectives from him on our core subtext as he is in more of a curator / cultural commentator position so is much more able to give us an 'aerial view' of our subject.
We love Okido... Our kids love Okido... We we were lucky enough to spend the day with Sophie Dauvois, Maggie Li and Alex Barrow at Okido, which was an absolute blast of a day.
We got to see the team (minus Rachel Ortas) putting together one of their coveted, joyful children's publications, and we got a great interview with Rachel, in which she spoke of 'Growing up with Paris glowing in the distance, and aspiring to be there one day'.
We can't wait to show you the results of our day of filming when the Made You Look documentary comes out in 2015!
The second instalment of taster videos leading up to our documentary release early 2015.
In this clip Fred tells us about his design education via the record sleeves of his formative years!
We are in the process of working on a documentary about the UK Graphic Arts scene, and along the way we are making mini films of each artist who contributes, this interview excerpt with the wonderful Ben O' Brien is the first of those mini films!
Next up to be interviewed for our documentary was genius paper craft artist and illustrator Helen Musselwhite. Helen's work is so unique and proved to be just as beautiful on camera as it is in the flesh... The crew had a fantastic day, and Helen's dog Earl managed to keep running off with microphone covers, equipment packaging and anything he could steal from our bags!
We had the pleasure of starting our documentary off in the presence of the lovely Ben O' Brien and his partner in crime Fi O' Brien. We got a wonderfully candid interview with ben and plenty of lush footage of his glorious work and hand made products.
